    Great! Now he can focus on legalizing millions of criminal aliens and putting even more Americans out of work!
    He’s already put 1 in 6 Americans on food stamps, why not make it mandatory?

    There is no way immigration reform is going to pass. It would severely hurt many agricultural producers. Under the current law, one can hire only illegals, get the fruit picked, and call La Migra on payday. What could be better?


    Of course, Obama has made some mistakes. He threatened to prosecute employers, and some believed the threats and let entire orchards rot. But not too many. Things are pretty much back to normalcy now, just as we like it.

    If the immigration program is based on our colleges educating students to be doctors,work on medical technology, and develop new medical technologies, it’s a nice tie in. Otherwise, Mr. Oliphant has a very good point. And with NBC breaking news that Mr. Obama knew three years ago that some Americans would end up losing their the coverage they have now, despite his promises they wouldn’t, he may get even more aggressive about immigration.
    I wish the RNC, DNC, superpacs, and talking heads of the media would quit looking at controversial people to lead us and start giving a voice to people with ideas instead of “star power”.
    Respectfully,

    Some people on the planet can walk and chew gum at the same time. Immigration reform is a legislative lift, while fixing the exchange website debacle is administrative. Doing both requires different people in different jobs.

    It’s embarrassing to think that someone as allegedly perceptive as Oliphant couldn’t understand that, or or that one as allegedly honest as Oliphant would intentionally ignore it.

    The ruling class hired Obama, througt their controlled media and phony elections, to keep the working class confused and distracted, especially black folks. So far, it’s working. I suspect that Oliphant and the majority of his middle class readers are completely taken in by this carnival huckster.

    You can’t call them illegals any more because they make up the fastest growing voting block in the nation. It might hurt their feelings.

    I guess he surrendered on the idea of Wall Street reform.

    tiredofit, I do commend you for your cogent points. You are quite right and I tip my hat to your analysis.

    A very astute gentleman once said.
    “The best men and women in this country are not in politics.
    If they were industry would hire them away”
    So,I guess what we are left with is chaff.

    Nothing, I repeat, Nothing Obama has done during his two terms has worked as advertised. How can anyone actually believe that an immigration “reform” that he endorses would actually work?

    You’re totally out of touch. Farmers WANT immigration reform. In Alabama the crops are rotting in the field because they can’t get workers.

    You write “the best and the brightest”, but I think you mean “the worst and the slimiest”.
